I managed to make it work by manually setting the colors (using the suggested functions):

;; Cursor colors
(setq evil-emacs-state-cursor '("sienna" box))
(setq evil-insert-state-cursor '("dark orange" bar))
(setq evil-visual-state-cursor '("black" hollow))

What I was not able was to use the generic code you sent. But I'm happy with this version.
